Tincture is done

Well yesterday I got my Echinacea tinctures done! Yeah! I love growing my own medicine and its cheaper! My pointer figure were the knife was now there is a blister. I chopped and chopped that magical root. Now only six weeks till I can use it.
I'm sure you know about Echinacea by now. Its pretty much every wear. I found this bit of inflammation for you:

"Scientific studies now validate Echinacea's traditional usage as a topical agent to help the body repair skin wounds, and internally to enhance the immune system. The active constituents in Echinacea which are thought to bolster the body's defense are known as polysaccharides. Polysaccharides stimulate the activity of macrophages, white blood cells which destroy bacteria, viruses, other foreign invaders, and even wayward cells. It also activates the body's production of interferon, a specific protein which protects cells against the invasion of viruses."

As for Etsy there is Tincture and dried herbs on there as well.

You can get a 1 oz bottle of Echinacea Tincture for $16.00 from

Also a 2 oz Lemon Balm tincture for $12.95 from

and don't forget the dried herbs and spices you might need as well!

So very cool! I never did think that this could be grown for personal use/small business purposes. I'm impressed and think it's great to be in a world with people like you.
